Tagfish

A blend of documentary, performance and video by Flemish theater group Berlin, which tells the story of the UNESCO world heritage site Zollverein, a coalmining complex in the German Ruhr area.

The Flemish theater group Berlin makes cinematic theater, a blend of documentary, performance and video. Tagfish tells the story of the UNESCO world heritage site Zollverein, a coalmining complex in the German Ruhr area.

Following the exodus of industry from the region, people set to work searching for new purposes for the abandoned land and vacant industrial heritage sites. One person who immediately has ideas about the future is Sheikh Hani Yamani. He has his eyes on Zollverein for the construction of his latest dream, but can a world heritage site be sold? Proponents and opponents each have their own opinions about this. So it’s high time that those involved put their heads together. Six individuals appear on six vertical flat screens that are situated around a long table: the architect, the town planner, the professor, the negotiator, the journalist and the provocateur. These people have never met before in real life. The seventh chair is empty. Now they must wait for the Sheikh, in the hope that he arrives, because there’s a lot to talk about.

During IDFA, as part of the Expanding Documentary program, Berlin performed Tagfish live at De Brakke Grond.
